The Tine de Conflens is an impressive waterfall, where the Venoge and the Veyron meet in a beautiful rocky place.
!! Because of the Covid-19, the Tine de Conflens and its access road (about 200 m) are strictly forbidden to anyone until further notice.
The signposted footpath between La Sarraz and Ferreyres remains open to the public for the time being, subject to compliance with the health regulations in force. !!
The tumultuous waters of the Veyron and the Venoge have shaped canyons in the limestone rock of the Tine de Conflens. Beautiful waterfalls are visible. The Helvetians, contemporaries of the Romans, erected there a "chatelard", a fortified camp, of which the vestiges of the enclosure remain. A sign-posted path allows access to the bottom of the gorges where you can admire perfect "torrential pots" that "play" with the course of the water.
Let us note finally that the word Tine means Barrel and Conflens comes from the word confluence.
